Generally, I keep real-time protection disabled - but, I do that with all anti-viruses.
I am running 4.2.40 x64 no problems. Win7
oh it definitely the real time protection that causes it.
I keep mine enabled, I am so paranoid now especially somehow my gmail account and paypal account got hacked within a week eachother...both different emails and password, so I was thinking I had a keylogger installed, but i ran every online virus program and spybot software, and it came up empty, could not figure how that happened.
It is actually the main reason I decided to upgrade to Win7, I figure to play safe I will reformat and now is a perfect time to go win 7
